Stop U.S. Tax Dollars From Funding Population Control In China


China's infamous one-child policy has brought forced abortion and sterilization, fines, persecution, and imprisonment to millions of Chinese women. But many people don't realize that a UN agency, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) works alongside the Chinese government to help make this possible.

What We Do: 

Our careful research has shown the connection between the United Nations and Chinese population control activities. Our investigators have spent hundreds of hours walking through actual UNFPA counties in China, interviewing villagers and taping testimonies.

We use this testimony to fight the UNFPA's population control activities by hitting them where it really hurts: their pocketbook. According U.S. law, tax dollars cannot be spent to promote forced abortion in other countries. While the UNFPA claims that its activities are free from coercion, we have repeatedly shown that, in China, the UNFPA does precisely that. As a result, working with U.S. lawmakers, we have stripped nearly $800 million dollars from the UNFPA's budget over the years, and turned that money over toward programs that actually help women and families around the world.

But the fight continues. Recent U.S. legislation has re-funded the UNFPA, despite its population control agenda. And the UNFPA continues to promote its agenda not just in China, but all throughout the world.
